With each new year comes the opportunity to improve life over the previous year. A majority of people make resolutions, but most fail because their goals are too general. If you have resolved to focus on being a superstar at work this year, here are some specific tips to help you succeed!

Improve your goal setting

Whether you’re a seasoned vet at a company or a relatively new employee, goal setting is one of the best ways to become a standout employee. Look at what you want to accomplish and determine how your individual goals align with larger corporate initiatives. Develop goals that stretch you beyond your comfort zone and still harmonize with your company goals.

Once you know what you want to accomplish and how it will better your organization, share your plan with your supervisor so he or she can hold you accountable. It’s easy to create a plan and let it fall by the wayside, but having regular checkpoints established will help you meet and possibly even exceed your goals.

Learn something new

No matter how good you are at your job, there is always room for improvement. Whether you want to learn a different position in the company or advance your knowledge in a specific software, dedicate yourself to advancing your knowledge and diversifying your abilities. Your employer will notice your initiative and passion for improving yourself.

Increase your emotional intelligence

People with higher emotional intelligence, or EQ, tend to be better workers. They cooperate better with others, practice empathy, listen to feedback, and manage pressure without being overwhelmed. EQ is projected to be one of the most desired job skills in 2020. With a higher EQ  you are better equipped to handle your position and more likely to have good working relationships.

Be grateful

There are many studies that show the value of being more thankful. It’s a stress reliever to write down what you’re thankful for and go over the list. On days you don’t want to go to work or the daily frustration is hitting you hard, write down what you’re thankful for related to your job. This can change your mindset and improve your attitude in the workplace.

Improve your time management

If you want to be a more efficient worker and boost workplace efficiency overall, better management of your time is a crucial place to start. By completing projects on time and not letting yourself fall behind, you’ll experience less stress and benefit your company with on-time deliverables.
